Question The first stage of conducting a research study is developing a hypothesis. Question A researcher can draw on his or her life experience when formulating a research question for scientific study. Question A dependent variable is the variable that the researcher believes contributes to change in the variable of interest. Question Computer interviews appear to be more reliable than face-to-face interviews when conducting research on personal issues, such as sexual behavior.

13 13 of 14 Question Select a social problem and explain the objective and subjective elements of that social problem. s will vary. The objective element of a social problem is the existence of the social condition. The subjective element is the belief that the social condition is harmful to society or a segment of society. Question State a social phenomenon that some groups or societies view as a social problem and others do not. What differences in values or beliefs might account for this variability in definition of a social problem? s will vary. An example is abortion, which many Catholics view as immoral because of their religious beliefs and many feminists believe is the natural right a female should have over her own body. Question How does an achieved status differ from an ascribed status? Give an example of how an ascribed status can affect an achieved status. An ascribed status is one that society assigns to an individual on the basis of factors over which the individual has no control.

A possible example of an ascribed status that might affect achieved status is a person who suffers discrimination in the job market because of his or her gender or race. Question What are three major ways in which values influence social problems? Provide an example of an American value that has helped develop a social problem.

Question List and explain the three types of social norms and provide an example of each. The three types of social norms are folkways, laws and mores. Folkways are customs and manners in society, such as shaking hands when meeting someone for the first time. Laws are norms that are formalized and backed by political authority, such as speed limits. Mores are norms with a moral basis that may produce shock if violated, such as child sexual abuse. Question Choose a private trouble you have experienced. Use your sociological imagination to explain how this problem can also be viewed as a public issue. s will vary. Public issues are explained by elements of social structure and culture in the larger society. Question How do the concepts of anomie and alienation differ? Give an example of each. Anomie refers to lack of agreement about norms. An example is whether premarital sex is okay. Alienation refers to feelings of powerlessness and meaningless experienced by people in modern society. An example is a worker on a factory assembly line. Question Explain the concept of verstehen and its relationship to social science research. Verstehen is a concept used by Max Weber that means empathy in German. Verstehen suggests that in conducting research, social scientists must try to understand others view of reality and the subjective aspects of their experiences, including their symbols, values, attitudes, and beliefs. Question List the first five steps in conducting a research study. The steps are: (1) formulating a research question, (2) reviewing the literature, (3) operationalizing the variables, (4) formulating a hypothesis, and (5) collecting the data. Question If you wanted to study the extent to which youth engage in behavior that puts them at high risk for transmitting or contracting HIV, what method of data collection would you use? Explain the advantage of the method you select for studying this topic. The answer to this question may vary. This topic was given in the text as appropriate for an interview because the population is not easy to access. Another possibility is field research, non-participant observation. Question List five major social institutions in society and, for each, give an example of possible breakdown in the institution and a social problem that might have resulted from that breakdown. Question List and define the five elements of culture. For each element, explain how it contributes to social problems and give examples to illustrate your explanations.

14 14 of 14 Question Summarize the sociological imagination and explain how it can be used to understand social problems using two specific examples. Question Many colleges are beginning to offer Internet classes. What is the manifest function of an Internet college class? What would be some latent functions of taking an internet college class? What might be some dysfunctions of taking an Internet college class instead of a class in a regular classroom? Question Choose an institution in American society and identify two social problems associated with this institution. For one of the social problems, describe a possible cause of and solution to the problem from the social pathology model. For the other social problem, describe a possible cause of and solution to the problem from the social disorganization model. Question Explain the similarities and differences between contemporary Marxist conflict theory and non-marxist conflict theory. Then choose a social problem and discuss possible explanations of the problem from each conflict perspective (Marxist and non-marxist). Conclude by explaining which perspective you think is most useful for understanding the social problem you selected and justify your response. Question Explain the differences among the three major theoretical perspectives in sociology (structural-functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism) in their view of (a) society, (b) individuals, (c) the causes of social problems, and (d) social policies or solutions for social problems. Question From each of the three major theoretical perspectives (structural-functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism) explain how mass media might contribute to social problems. Question Describe each of the following research methods and explain the main strengths and weaknesses of each: experiments, survey research, field research, secondary data research. Question Design a research study on a particular social problem that interests you.
